Our Commitment

We value the importance of volunteerism and make it a priority to ensure that all volunteers have an enriching and satisfying experience as they help to fulfill the needs of the theatre. Because “Learning is at the centre of everything we do”, we offer training and enhanced learning opportunities for our volunteers.

Applications from all interested candidates are welcome, and people with disabilities and individuals from equity-seeking groups are encouraged to apply. Accommodations are available on request for volunteer candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
